The British Fashion Council (BFC) has proclaimed the nominations for this year’s fashion awards, which celebrate international talent in the industry from business to creativity and from emerging talent to fashion icons.

The selected nominees are the result of the preferences of 1500 surveyed members of the fashion industry, representing 41 countries across media, retail, communications and disciplines such as photography, art direction, set design and production. Nominations were made in nine categories with the five brands and/or individuals receiving the most support shortlisted in each category.

Winners will be announced at a gala ceremony taking place at the Royal Albert Hall in London on December 5. Four additional individuals will be given special prizes on that night for incredible career milestones and to celebrate the role of creative influencers in the field.
